Hands-on Ultrasound Guidance Workshop

Pre-registration Required – These workshops are for clinical physicians only and limited to ONE session per attendee. Please sign up for only one session, additional submissions will be rejected.

These 90-minute workshops will focus on the role of ultrasound as an important guidance technique for neurotoxin injections. Each workshop session will include:

  • A brief didactic review of ultrasound principles
  • Hands-on scanning practice, which will occur in small groups (two or three attendees per ultrasound device) supervised by an international expert

The overall goal of the workshops is to help attendees:

  • Understand the respective sonoacoustic properties of bone, muscle, nerve, tendon, and other soft tissues
  • Identify key muscles involved in upper and lower limb spasticity and/or dystonia, based on pattern recognition using ultrasound
  • Identify key muscles involved in movement disorders of the head and neck, as well as salivary glands contributing to sialorrhea, based on pattern recognition using ultrasound

The technical skills acquired during this workshop are designed to assist injectors with performing ultrasound-guided chemodenervation procedures in clinical practice.

New Abstract Topic

International Forum: Exploring the National, Regional, and Local Clinical Experience With Botulinum Neurotoxins

In recognition of the country-specific and/or institution-specific differences in the use of BoNTs in clinical practice, this session is designed for clinicians and research scientists to share their experience and insights with global colleagues. A session format combining presentations and a panel discussion will identify and explore these differences in the clinical application of BoNTs relating to: patient populations, treatment protocols, best practices for common indications, pharmacoeconomic considerations, and data for the use of BoNT therapy in innovative ways.
